    I don't know if this has been done before but I was just looking at all these posts about which friendship was best etc and was wondering: Do you think some relationships were not as close as others or not as much seen as others? I mean we see a lot of Chandler and Joey's friendship and some other friendships were shown very often: Rachel and Monica, Joey and Phoebe. But who do you think should have been shown more or which friendship was the weakest?

    In my opinion Phoebe and Ross' friendship or Chandler and Phoebe's friendship weren't as close and often shown as others. There were also very few Rachel and Chandler moments.
    So, what do you think?

    Definitely Ross and Phoebe. Especially since she plans to kill him in the future...

    I think Ross/Phoebe & Chandler/Rachel. It was apparent that there wasn't much to the Chan/Rach relationship when she said her goodbyes to everyone (when she was going to go to Paris) and they didn't have much to say to each other. I also think there the Chandler/Phoebe relationship was okay. They could've shown more, but it was sufficient. TOW Everybody Finds Out is one of the episodes where they are shown together a lot, and that eppie has some of their best moments together IMO.

    It's got to be Chandler/Phoebe or Joey/Monica. I'm really surprised no-ones mentioned Joey/Monica because they had zero storylines just them together. Which is really weird seeing as they were originally written as a couple that would end up with each other. Pheobe/Ross had quite a few storylines just them (eg. learning to ride a bike, Phoebe hating Ross, Phoebe knowing about Ross still being married to Rachel) and so did Chandler/Rachel (eg. Chandler setting Rachel up with people from his work, Chandler going out with Rachels boss - twice, Chandler seeing Rachels boobies) Joey/Monica and Chandler/Phoebe had absolutely no episodes together just with each other. If someone can name a storyline which they did have together, then I will give them a prize.

    yeah Ross and Phoebe friendship was quite on display. She is the person who pushes him to tell Rachel how he feels.

    and yes, Chandler and Rachel friendship is the least shown, though we get to see glimpse of it in the one with the girl from Poughkeepsie, the one with the cuff,dollhouse, second last episode. Chandler and Phoebe is the one that is least shown. most of the time phoebe is making fun of chandler and chandler cracking sarcastic jokes on her. but you can notice their sibling like relation where she makes him cry in tow the joey's dirty day and then hugs him. Similarly they have mature conversation abt Gold Man and Donald Duck's towel.
    and off course the most funny one in the funniest episode of Friends (TOW Everyone finds out)

    I have to say that the Chandler/Rachel was the weakest- but they all seemed to have pretty good connections.

    I would sayRachel and Chandler or Pheobe and Chandler. Rachel and Chandler rarely interact and Pheobe and Chandler don't even seem like they really like eachother. Like someone else said, whenever they do interact Chandler is mocking Pheobe or Pheobe is making fun of Chandler.

    Chandler and Rachel as people have said don't even particularly seem to like each other. The relationship between Ross and Pheobe is imo frosty the majority of the time. apart from a few times, ie just before they got mugged, Pheobe setting Ross up with a mate, Pheobe is either not talking directly to Ross, mocking him or threatening him(like when he told Mike Pheobe had never had a serious relationship)
